  1. Naddya, thank you very much for compiling this gem of an article! It was super interesting to learn so many new things about Melnik.

    I am not a fan of dry wines, but I will definitely try the broad-leafed one! I was in Melnik in 2008 and back then I was not that curious of a traveller, so I only admired the sandstone pyramids and unique ambience of Melnik.

      I think you’ll like Shiroka Melnishka Loza. If not, try the dessert wine. It was fantastic, and I’m really a dry red wine lover ;)

      And definitely go up the St. Nikola plateau for the best view of The Melnik Pyramids and the ruins!

      Cheers, N.

  2. Thanks for giving me heads up about the dessert wine. I will definitely quench my thirst with that… and with the breath-taking view of the plateau :) Or, probably combine them both :)

      Just be careful when hiking the plateau – the earth gets slippery even by the smallest amount of rain…

      As for wines, just talk to the staff at the Wine Museum about your taste, I’m sure they’ll have the right recommendation for you!

      • Alright, I will :) That is not really a Wine Museum, by the way. The only one is in the vicinity of Pleven :)

          The one in Melnik is rather new, est. 2013. Not sure what makes a museum a real museum, to me it looked real enough ;) There were enough items on display and enough information about wine making and vine growing. And there was wine tasting!

          Never been to the Pleven museum of wine, but I’ll add it to my wish-list.
